Thrill me! When an alien experiment goes awry, it crashes to Earth in 1959 and infects a young college student. Twenty-seven years later, his cryogenically frozen body is thawed out by fraternity pledges — and the campus is quickly overrun by alien creatures whose victims turn into zombies! Fred Dekker’s thoroughly enjoyable throwback chiller throws all our favorite genres in a blender and creates something entirely wild. Featuring a gonzo performance from everyone’s favorite badass uncle Tom Atikins. Bonus points for the college itself and all the leading characters being named after famous horror movie directors!

“NIGHT OF THE CREEPS is the ‘I Love the ’80s’ of moviemaking. It has every element and cliché ever put into a film made in the greatest decade of my lifetime.” —Odie Henderson, Slant Magazine 

“Charm and a surprising amount of warmth to balance out its bucket loads of gore… A faultlessly fun genre picture.” —Christopher Mitchell, CineVue
